Your title says " Easy " so why not do them yourself.

For the first one, look at your isosceles triangle ABM (where M is that Mid point)

Draw a line splitting it in half

Use basic trig to find a half of x

Fixed the attachment. I said Easy because the marks awarded is 2 marks therefore not much working out is required. So although it's easy it doesn't mean I know how to do it.

Can you see the isosceles triangle that I am referencing

If so you know the base and the height

well, tbh, if you cannot see the triangle with x in it then you are not going to be able to solve this question
